The people over at People for Bikes, an initiative of Bikes Belong, have an email campaign going on right now. They are encouraging every cyclist to spend just a couple of minutes and email your representatives, reminding them that there are MANY people who feel bicycles and bicycle infrastructure are important. They even make the process simple with an online form.
The Rhode Island Bicycle Coalition leadership is working to setup an in person meeting with the RI delegation and will report back once this meeting has happened. But what are you waiting for, go on over and send an email.
